Today I learned just how bad my financial situation is. By the time this semester is over, I will likely be entirely out of money. That’s right. $0. I need a job, badly. Neither of my parents makes enough to help me out very much. I’m in college, so I have a secure house and meal plan, but beyond that I’m in trouble. Can you blame me for being terrified?
Today I learned about all the lovely things- pharmecuticals- floating around in America’s water. Mmm… carbamazepine… delicious.
Read about it for yourself here.
Today I learned about fairy tales.
I was reading this site and I knew most of them, but there were more that I didn’t know than I’d expected- specifically Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel. I’d never even heard of the Girl Without Hands… or rather I may have, but not under that name.
Today I learned that there is such thing as blowing your nose too much- it results in bloody noses. 😦 Beware.
I also learned (realized?) that I am very picky about books. I am always eager to start a new one, but I am much more reluctant if the book is recommended to me.
I’m reading such a book now (A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin), and while I was indeed reluctant to begin, it’s actually kind of fun to feel the story taking hold of me, mulling the plot and characters over in my head almost against my wishes. I love books. It’s so nice to feel that pull again- the pull to read and nothing else. No internet. No blog updates. No breakfast, no showers, much less sleep- I want to read!
